This is the Genealogy of Baha'u'llah,
showing His lineage from Bostanai (the exilarch: exiled Davidic monarch)
the son of King David.


Abdu'l-Baha explains:

This rod out of the stem of Jesse might be correctly applied to Christ, for Joseph was of the descendants of Jesse, the father of David; but as Christ found existence through the Spirit of God, He called Himself the Son of God. If He had not done so, this description would refer to Him..."They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." These conditions did not prevail in the time of the manifestation of Christ; for until today various and antagonistic nations exist in the world, very few acknowledge the God of Israel, and the greater number are without the knowledge of God...

But these verses apply word for word to Baha'u'llah: likewise in this marvelous cycle the earth will be transformed, and the world of humanity arrayed in tranquility and beauty. Disputes, quarrels and murders will be replaced by peace, truth, and concord; among the nations, peoples, races and countries, love and amity will appear. Cooperation and union will be established, and finally war will be entirely suppressed...

One of the great events which is to occur in the Day of the manifestation of that Incomparable Branch is the hoisting of the Standard of God among all nations; meaning that all nations and tribes will come under the shadow of this Divine Banner, which is no other than the Lordly Branch itself, and will become a single nation. The antagonism of faiths and religions, the hostility of races and peoples, and the national differences, will be eradicated from amongst them. All will become one religion, one faith, one race, and one single people, and will dwell in one native land, which is the terrestrial globe. Universal peace and concord will be realized, and that Incomparable Branch will gather together all Israel [under its new name Baha'i -- of Glory ( Isaiah 62:2, Rev. 3:15, Isaiah 6:3, Ezekiel 43:2)]: signifying that in this cycle Israel [Baha'i] will be gathered in the Holy Land [Kingdom of God in America] and that the Jewish people who are scattered to the East and West, South and North will be assembled together."                
-`Abdu'l-Baha: Some Answered Questions, Chapter XII: Commentary on the Eleventh Chapter of Isaiah, Pgs: 72-76

Abdu'l-Baha tells us that one of the great events to occur is the hoisting of this Standard of God, which is none other than the genealogy of Baha'u'llah, the Lordly Branch, shown explicitly here on this genealogy chart above. It is this Divine Banner only, which can unite the contending and warring people of the world. The Standard of God is now unfurled for all eyes to see, it is hoisted high as the noon day sun.
